Quilted Jacket Workshop with Sadhana Wray

And now for something different, and yet familiar: a cozy, quilted jacket, so cute it's hard to believe it started as a sweatshirt! Sadhana will show how the shop sample was made. During the workshop, you'll make the design decisions. You choose the fabric and prepare a jacket section with quilting or "big stitch" embroidery. You'll learn how to join the quilted sections and finish seams so they look good on the inside.

You'll need to bring a preshrunk sweatshirt 2 sizes larger than your usual size. Bring your sewing machine, or let us know if you want to rent a machine for $15; click here to rent a sewing machine.

Please note that this workshop assumes you already have basic sewing and quilting skills. 

There will be a 1/2 hour break for lunch. You may bring your own lunch or you can run down to Zanotto's and grab a sandwich. 

In this workshop, you will learn:
  • how to deconstruct your sweatshirt and turn it into the jacket pattern
  • construction options: using sweatshirt pieces as the foundation vs. using batting 
  • patchwork placement
  • seam finishes for bulky seams
  • how to use bias binding for the neckline
Please bring:
  • A sweatshirt 2 sizes larger than your usual size, washed and dried so it's preshrunk. The store sample used a Gildan sweatshirt size XXL, which finished 44" at the chest. If your sweatshirt has a hood or pockets, you can still use it, but a basic crewneck sweatshirt will work best.
  • Fabric for the outside of the Jacket: Large scraps totaling 3 yards for patchwork (outside of jacket). The scraps should be at least 4" wide. Ten scraps about 30" long, to use for the jacket front, sides, and arms. If you'd like to use leftover quilt blocks, bring them! This is a great opportunity to use what you have. All fabrics used in the store sample were preshrunk. If you don't have a chance to preshrink fabric, you can still use it. The jacket might get a crinkly "heirloom" look after washing. If you prefer using yardage rather than patchwork, bring 2-1/2 yards (42" wide) fabric for the jacket
  • 2-1/2 yards (42" wide) fabric for the lining. Lightweight fabric such as quilting cotton is ideal. Don't plan on fleece or corduroy; they are cozy but too bulky.
  • Batting pieces if you prefer to use that for the final jacket (instead of sweatshirt pieces).
  • Your sewing machine, but let us know if you prefer to rent a machine for $15 (see above for rental link).
  • Basic sewing/quilting tools - sharp fabric scissors, seam ripper, sewing machine needles (80/12 and 90/14).
We hope this will be a creative, collaborative, fun way to spend a Sunday. During the workshop you should be able to make one or more sections of the jacket, and see how to finish the rest of the jacket on your own. You may never look at a sweatshirt the same way again!
